On Dec. 2 and Dec. 9, guests can enjoy breakfast or lunch with Santa during a meet-and-greet that also includes a craft, a hayride and a train ride with Santa.

Polar Express Experience returns on Saturdays starting Nov. 25. The event offers attendees the unique opportunity to watch the “Polar Express” movie in an authentic train car.

Designated “Georgia’s Official Transportation History Museum,” the museum displays more than 90 pieces of historic railroad equipment, buses and artifacts that bring to life the region’s transportation history.
